According to a crash report, the sedan that the Orlando woman was in had become disabled due to its involvement in another collision around 10 minutes prior.

Following the SUV’s collision with the sedan, the Orlando woman was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead, troopers said.

The driver of the SUV — a 35-year-old man from Austin, Texas — was hospitalized with minor injuries, the report states; his passenger also received minor injuries, but the 30-year-old Austin woman was not taken for treatment, troopers said.

FHP is still investigating.
